Is Ashlee Simpson moving on just a month after filing for divorce from rocker Pete Wentz? She was seen with singer Craig Owens of the band D.R.U.G.S.

SIDE NOTE: Charlie Sheen is totally buying all their albums right now.

But is it love? Or, as a source close to the singer/actress says, just a friend reaching out to a friend in a difficult time? Depends what you read …

“Craig Owens is a longtime friend and was comforting Ashlee during this difficult time,” a Simpson source says. “She’s not moving on in a romantic way.”

“There’s no race for a new relationship. They’re friends.”

Recent reports that Simpson and Wentz are gearing up for a custody battle are also untrue, according to the source, insisting the “split is amicable.”

“Right now her attention is on Bronx and some new work projects she has coming up. That’s it.” For Wentz, sources say it’s the same priority: Bronx.

Well, that’s good. Not scandalous, but good for Bronx.
